As with so many building projects, the adage "safety first" applies. "You should avoid glazed or porous tiles and stone since they can be slippery when wet," says Sergio de Paula, president of Fogazzo Wood Fired Ovens and Barbecues in Arcadia, Calif., a company renowned for its outdoor kitchen designs.
Materials that meet the safety criteria include concrete, brick and natural stone. "Ceramic tile is also a popular choice that offers a variety of colors and finishes to choose from and, in most cases, is adequate in terms of slip resistance," Sergio says.
